I like the idea of a "drupal bumper" and then a separate contact bumper.

I'd be happy doing that instead of my previously proposed idea of
doing a customizable Drupal bumper.

Yeah, so, for me part of the reason to do this is that users need a
guide for how to use their sites.  So, if I'm creating it for a
specific site then I'm going to demo the function on that site with
it's specific theme.

As nice as consistency is in some things, using different sites and
themes in each videocast will showcase the variety of looks and
features could also be seen as a plus: Bluemarine everywhere isn't
going to show Drupal's best side...

I like the idea of having a mish-mash of different themes in the
videos.  It also lowers the barrier to contributing a video - if
people have to create a "raw" installation for each movie that just
means more work before you can even start making the movie.
